Renderings of Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1 Revealed by Jalopnik

Industry News

Exclusive images of the 2014 Chevy Corvette are causing quite a storm.

The guys over at Jalopnik have done a great job rendering the seventh-generation Corvette, derived from hours spent secretly drooling over the sheetmetal of both the base-level and high-performance ZR1 trim level. To protect their sources actual photos have not been released, but they assure us their renderings of the ZR1 trim level are accurate, something confirmed by different sources at GM, and by a non-GM employee at the Milford Proving Grounds.

This source confirmed the vehicle was one of two Initial Vehicle Engineering Release (IVER) doing the rounds there. The base model Corvette is slated for 2014 and is expected to be revealed at Detroit 2013, with the ZR1 trim level following shortly after. In terms of style changes the C7, as dubbed by GM insiders, has been given Camaro-inspired face lifts, especially the taillights and bold side vents. GM have gone on the record saying they "appreciate their [Jalopnik] enthusiasm" with the renderings but that fans have yet to see "what the next Corvette will actually look like."
